This meetup is about "open source, distributed, non relational databases".
Have you run into limitations with traditional relational databases? Don't mind trading a query language for scalability? Or perhaps you just like shiny new things to try out? Either way this meetup is for you.
Join us in figuring out why these newfangled Dynamo clones and BigTables have become so popular lately. We have gathered presenters from the most interesting projects around to give us all an introduction to the field.
